That and they won't get away with some of the stuff they can on youtube. Can you imagine RTE allowing a mini-series taking the piss out of travellers? Pavee Point would have a coniption.

On the browser wars, I used to use chrome the whole time but I'm back to using Firefox more now. Chrome started acting the bollix with displaying images/videos on forums.

Firefox 24.5 crashes loads for me now, not as a result of any obvious user action or anything, just randomly falls over. That Chrome tab process isolation thing where the whole browser doesn't go down whenever one tab does is the best.

That game of mobile homes, yer man chris is on 2fm already. Fairly sure he does the night time show, "Chris and Ciara, the bottom of the barrel". He used to be on iRadio

I use Safari.

Or Chrome on my work laptop though all the work related apps open automagically in IE so I use it for them. But they also use Lotus fucking Notes

I can't say I have tbh.
he cycles around NI and stops off at various parts. first three are on I-player atm.

first episode starts off in belfast, he went round the markets because his mother was from there.

looks like a good watch. very similar to the type billy connolly used to do on his harley.
Might give an episode of this a lash tonight

O2.

Yeah I saw one on Sky Arts a while back, the stage was a 360 degree job with the audience surrounding it. Loads of costume changes and madness. At one point he was riding a bike around it.

Why would wanting to see Peter Gabriel make you a bad person? It's not genesis you'd be going to

Sure this is it.

In fact I watched Genesis concert from Rome in 2007 on Sky the other week.

Fuck me it was bad. So, so bad.

I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
